Iowa State hoopster suspended after OWI arrest


April 13th, 2014 by Chris Parks

Iowa State basketball player Abdel Nader has been suspended indefinitely after being arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated Saturday, April 12th in Ames.  Iowa State head men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg suspended Nader in accordance with the Iowa State student-athlete code of conduct policy.  Nader is a forward that transferred this past season to Iowa State from Northern Illinois and was sitting out per NCAA transfer rules.  Nader would be eligible to play for the Cyclones next season.

ISU defensive lineman Irving dismissed from team


April 13th, 2014 by Chris Parks

Following the Iowa State spring football game head coach Paul Rhoads announce the dismissal of defensive tackle David Irving from the football team. Irving faces three charges from the Ames Police Department for his part in a riot near campus on Tuesday Night.  Pictures recently surfaced of Irving carrying a stop sign during the incident.

Rhoads stated during his press conference that “It’s a privilege and an honor to be a part of this football program and represent Iowa State football, Iowa State athletics and Iowa State University,” Rhoads said. “David Irving has exhausted that privilege to represent this football program by not meeting the expectations that we’ve laid out for him.”

The dismissal came after it was announced Friday that Irving was suspended indefinitely.  Irving was also arrested in mid-November of 2013 on a domestic assault charge that was later dropped.  He started 8 of the 10 games he played in last season.

Cardinals extend contract of GM Mozeliak


April 12th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Cardinals extended the contract of general manager John Mozeliak for two years through the 2018 season.  Mozeliak, 45, has been with the Cardinals organization for the last 19 seasons, the last six as GM. During Mozeliak’s tenure, the Cardinals have been to the postseason four times, winning two National League pennants, and a World Series in 2011.

The Cardinals have also been recognized twice by Baseball America as the organization of the year (2011 and 2013).

Young WRs shine in open Iowa workout


April 12th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa’s coaching staff has at times raved about its crop of redshirt freshman wide receivers.  Hawkeyes fans in central Iowa on Saturday got to see why the unit appears to have such a bright future.

Newcomer Andre Harris caught a pair of long touchdown passes at an open workout at Valley High in West Des Moines, about 120 miles from campus. Derrick Willies added another TD following broken coverage, and A.J. Jones and Derrick Mitchell Jr. certainly looked ready to compete for playing time next fall.

The Hawkeyes have plenty of depth at wide receiver. But senior Kevonte Martin-Manley is the only one who’s proven he can be a consistent threat – and even he had just 388 yards last season.

QB Rohach shines in Iowa State spring game


April 12th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Grant Rohach made a strong case for himself in Iowa State’s spring game Saturday in the Cyclones’ seemingly annual competition for the starting quarterback job.

Rohach outshone Sam Richardson and Joel Lanning on a warm, windy day, completing 22 of 38 passes for 171 yards and two interceptions. He led three scoring drives — two touchdowns and a field goal — and scored one of the TDs himself from 8 yards out on a nifty read option.

With two more spring practices remaining, coach Paul Rhoads said no decision has been made on a starter.

Carpenter, Wainwright help Cardinals top Cubs 10-4


April 12th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Matt Carpenter drove in two runs and Adam Wainwright saved a tired bullpen by lasting seven innings for the St. Louis Cardinals in their 10-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. It was hardly a vintage performance by Wainwright (2-1). He gave up a homer to Junior Lake on his first pitch and allowed six more hits and three runs after that while striking out eight. The four runs were twice as many as Wainwright yielded in his first two starts.

But the right-hander, who led the majors with 241 2-3 innings pitched last year, was able to give the Cardinals’ bullpen some rest. St. Louis relievers Carlos Martinez, Kevin Siegrist and Trevor Rosenthal all threw more than 20 pitches in Friday’s 11-inning loss.

The win was Wainwright’s 101st with the Cardinals, tying Matt Morris, Larry Jackson and Max Lanier for 10th place on the franchise list.
